On Instinct

“Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.” Benjamin Spock

Nature teaches us about instinct. How does a Momma animal of any kind know how to care for it’s new offspring? By instinct.

We are no different. Perhaps the difference lies in our ability to trust ourselves in life. As human beings we have brains that can become very analytical and logical. We sometimes forget that we have instinct and that we can trust it. Rather than human ‘beings’ we become human analysers. 😊

Let us all be reminded of this amazing and innate natural gift that we all possess.
